Coinsilium Group Limited - Fundraising and Trading Update PR Newswire

7 March 2017

COINSILIUM GROUP LIMITED
(“Coinsilium” or the “Company”)

 FUNDRAISING AND TRADING UPDATE

Coinsilium Group Limited (NEX: COIN), the blockchain technology investment and development company, is pleased to announce that it has successfully raised £187,985 gross of expenses through the issue of 18,798,500 ordinary shares of no par value (“Ordinary Shares”) at a price of 1 pence per share (the “Subscription”), mainly supported by existing shareholders and all current directors. The funds raised will be utilised for general working capital purposes and for new initiatives within the blockchain sector.

The Directors’ participation in the Subscription are:


Director      Number of Ordinary shares Amount subscribed

Eddy Travia   1,000,000                 £10,000

Malcolm Palle 2,500,000                 £25,000

Tony Sarin    1,000,000                 £10,000



Current Trading and Outlook

Since the beginning of the year, Coinsilium has seen material increases in the valuations of some of its principal investments, notably Factom and SatoshiPay, to date and the Directors are optimistic that this growth trend in the value of the Company’s investment portfolio will continue.  

Moving forwards, the Company will be taking a more proactive stance and is currently reviewing a number of potential commercial opportunities to further expand the business in an innovative, yet cost effective manner.  

As awareness of Blockchain technologies reaches the mainstream and broader market, the Company’s prime near-term objective is to significantly advance Coinsilium's profile and raise investor awareness of the Company’s activities. Coinsilium is a rarity in London, being a quoted company dedicated to Blockchain and as such there are few opportunities for investors to engage in this space.  As a result, the Board firmly believes that the Company is well positioned to leverage its early mover advantage, its notable industry profile and connection network to deliver shareholder value.

Eddy Travia, Chief Executive Officer of Coinsilium stated:

“We are delighted to see the continued support of our existing shareholders and all current directors in the current fundraising.

“Businesses worldwide are now starting to recognise the potential of blockchain technologies and their capacity to improve lives and generate significant cost savings through enhanced business efficiencies.  We also fully expect Blockchain technologies to open up numerous new commercial opportunities. With that impact comes the chance for Coinsilium to generate asymmetric returns from making early stage investments in some of the most viable Blockchain opportunities. We look forward to announcing some of the new initiatives we have planned over the coming weeks."

On completion of the Subscription, the Company is aware of the following disclosable interests in the share capital of the Company:
